Top 5 Things To Do On National Bourbon Day

In Banter by Patrick "Pops" Garrett2 Comments

Today’s the day I’ve been waiting for all year. The one day that I can drink bourbon all day and have a honest excuse for my excess.

That’s right folks, it’s National Bourbon Day!!!

Sure. Some people would argue that drinking all day is a little excessive and that I should wait until after work. But hey, we don’t just celebrate Christmas for a few hours out of the day do we? Heck no! We celebrate Christmas for days if not weeks. By comparison my, and hopefully your, celebration of National Bourbon Day is short and to the point. If you find yourself being chastised for putting bourbon in your coffee or ordering a Manhattan at lunch just remember that the people you’re with may not realize it’s National Bourbon Day. Please remain calm and educate them to today’s importance. And then do the right thing…buy them a glass of bourbon.

And if you’re really looking for ways to take your celebration to the next level I’d like to offer up Bourbon & Banter’s Top 5 Things To Do On National Bourbon Day. It’s a practical list of recommendations to really maximize your consumption of all things bourbon related. Please share it with your friends who may not be as bourbon-wise as you are so they can start to appreciate what bourbon has given to the world.
